I am 'running' Tough Mudder Wisconsin to support the Wounded Warrior Project.
Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) is a nonprofit organization with the mission to honor and empower Wounded Warriors. WWP programs are specifically structured to engage warriors, nurture their minds and bodies, and encourage their economic empowerment. Family members and caregivers are provided comfort, care, and education to help support the recovery of their injured warrior. All 20 programs are provided free of charge for warriors, their families, and caregivers. Tough Mudder has given over $8 million to WWP thus far.
On a personal note, I thought I was too old for this kind of race (almost 63), but I was inspired/motivated to run this event after talking to a Wounded Warrior Team running in the World's Toughest Mudder (a 24 hour event) last fall. If those guys could do WTM, I figured I could run a regular Tough Mudder to help them out. I hope you will consider donating a few bucks to this worthy cause. Thanks.
